At-Home Fire Safety Checklist

Fire and Emergency from Fire and Emergency New Zealand

With everyone staying home, it’s now more important than ever for everyone to be fire-safe. People can find information on our website - fireandemergency.nz...

We’re heading into winter, and with households self-isolating together, there’ll be more cooking at home, and more use of open fires, heaters, and dryers - all things which can increase fire risk.

New Zealanders can be confident that Fire and Emergency is well-prepared and ready to respond to emergencies as usual during the nationwide self- isolation period.

Please call 111 if you have a fire, we will ask you whether anyone at the address is self-isolating or has a confirmed case of COVID-19. Where this is the case, we already have necessary measures in place to ensure everyone’s safety including protective clothing, gloves, masks, safety glasses and mask.

Caroline from Feilding

Dear Neighbors. As we start our new normal for the next few weeks I wish you all the best.

For those that are following my story I would like to publicly share the latest bullying move from the Manawatu Council.

A supporter of mine, who wrote to try an offer an olive branch to MDC received a response from Michael Ford that they see the issue differently.

Which issue is this?
That a recycling center - a commercial activity was placed on my fence with no resource consents.
That it affected my mental health so badly they had to move the glass (wrote that they would move the lot).
That Building inspector Tony Kellerman jumped over my locked gate went all around my property opening doors and inside a building where I have my personal belongings. This was unlawful according to Building Act S226. When inspecting a home unit, this includes land and group of buildings, the inspector must show his identification and have permission from the home owner or a court order. He had neither.
I was then issued a Notice to Fix (unattainable conditions so basically an eviction notice)

19th of March I wrote to Mayor Helen Worboys and Michael Ford requesting their view of the issue. I received no response from either person.

I did though receive a letter dated 19th of March (the same day) regarding my swimming pool. This is FOUR MONTHS after Tony Kellerman inspected my property, even mentioning the pool. As my pool is over 1.2m high it does not need a fence, the pool ladder was up and there was nothing around the edge to get up on. We are going into winter - swimming time is over!

To receive this letter now, at this time of uncertainty, shows the level of bullying and abuse of power of MDC. While they are not held accountable for their actions, they have plenty of ratepayer $$ to spend on $500 an hour lawyers to try and make me homeless. All I can do is publicly share the ongoing bullying of MDC.

Thank you dear Neighbors for your ongoing support.
